News: 3TEETH releases debut on Artoffact records

by on Jun.09, 2014, under News

image001Los Angeles industrial foursome 3TEETH released their debut self-titled album on Artoffact Records on June 3rd, landing at #8 on iTunes Electronic chartand reaching #5 on Bandcamp’s overall sales rankings. The group garnered praise from all corners of the internet in the weeks leading up to the release, including high marks from top blogs EarmilkMishkaI Die: You DieDesign Milk, and Electronic Beats. A remix album featuring the likes of Aesthetic PerfectionBestial MouthsAAIMON, and Blush Response—and released on a tooth-shaped USB stick—sold out on pre-orders, as did the band’s accompanying splatter vinyl.

3TEETH formed in late 2012 and the group spent 2013 crafting their sound and creating an online image that is at once political and mysterious. The group’s logo-emblazoned photos have become the stuff of memes, and their online fanbase has increased with every leaked remix, video, and photograph.

image0033TEETH will debut their live show at LA’s prestigious Complex club on June 21st, and they will make their Canadian debut at Calgary’s Terminus Festival June 27th-29th. More tour dates are in the works.


“Bands like 3TEETH and Youth Code are reviving a scene that had become bogged down by formulaic bands seeking underground success.”

Caroline Williamson, Design Milk

“3 Teeth are poised to connect all the fucking dots and release the sort of record that defines Our Thing in the coming year.”

I Die: You Die

“A heavy contender for album of the year.”

Backseat Mafia

“3TEETH offers a blow-your-face-off new Industrial album with depth and grit, reminiscent of Trent Reznor’s ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ scoring. It will actually shake your bones…you can’t miss this.”

The Daily Grind

 “A+. Instant contender for Album of the Year. Everything industrial music should be in 2014.”

News: Cat Rapes Dog return with new CD

by on Sep.03, 2013, under News

Somehow we just knew we had to make music. Problem was we couldn’t play and didn’t have any instruments.

Described by Sweden’s national tabloid Expressen as “a perfect union of Front 242 and the B-52’s,” Swedish electronic punk group Cat Rapes Dog is back with their first album since 1999. The new album, dubbed Life Was Sweet, is the seventh Cat Rapes Dog studio release and first on label Artoffact. The band gets right to the point and stays true to their punk rock roots, rarely pausing and skipping all filler. The album clocks in at a “fits on vinyl” 35 minutes, but in this short space Cat Rapes Dog will tell you to go out and vote, give you a lesson in religion, and baffle you with a sense of humour all their own. Manic electronic synth lines meet over-the-top male and female vocals on nine tracks of pure DIY weird. (continue reading…)

News: Mr.Kitty release album on Engraved Rituals label

by on Jul.09, 2013, under News

Rippling with emotive stealth, sleek melodies, and sly rhythms, the sounds of Dallas based Mr.Kitty dance across the senses igniting thoughts and passions with their incendiary seduction with every persuasive movement. It is a temptation brewed from a blissful fusion of electronic pop and new wave energy with eighties post punk and emotive Goth sensitivity, a fascination which wraps around the mind and heart inviting a full and frank emotional union with the startling imagination and eager perception offered.

News: Mlada Fronta to release 10CD retrospective boxset

by on Jun.26, 2013, under News

Since 1992, French electronic musician Rémy Pelleschi has used his Mlada Fronta project to compose industrial soundscapes ranging from haunting atmospheres to tribal rhythms to cinematic immersions of the highest order of technical perfection. Owing to the very well-received club hit “XB-33,” which correctly refers to as a club “anthem even,” Mlada Fronta was on everyone’s radar in 1999 when the now defunct Flatline Records put out High Tension, the project’s breakout album. Following this, Pelleschi started Parametric Records and between 2001 and 2005 released truly captivating electronic music (on both audio and DVD) and gained attention from the likes of, who called Mlada Fronta “nothing short of an extended immersive experience.”

Recognizing the immense importance of Pelleschi’s work as Mlada Fronta, Artoffact Records presents Every Thing, a 10 CD boxset that collects all previous Mlada Fronta releases, including bonus tracks, remixes, extra mp3 files, and all video material. The boxset is housed in a high quality, hard cover digibook including 40 page booklet, all designed by Pelleschi. Each release has been remastered in 32bit 96kHz (hi-definition) using only state of the art analog and digital hardware at Pelleschi’s own QFG Studios. Artoffact Records will also be releasing the entire Mlada Fronta discography as digital releases on iTunes, complete with exclusive PDF booklets.

“Nothing short of an extended immersive experience.” -Theo Kavadias,

“Mlada Fronta is a machine that plays tricks to your imagination and controls your psyche.” -Christophe Labussière, Premonition Magazine

“Like music from another galaxy!” -Side-Line

“Stunning work.” -Igloo Mag

by on Jan.25, 2013, under News

.facebook_-1218931220First, as an announcement was made by JF yesterday that tickets are now available for purchase, run over and get your tickets. Thought there’s only 550 tickets available, the organizer (JF) has said that if it looks like they may sell out, he will move the show to a different venue that has more capacity.

The venue has also been announced. The festival will be held at Le Belmont this year.

The festival website is also up and running and has all the info you should need regarding the festival. (website)

I will certainly be attending the festival. Hope to see you all there as well!

News : Final Kinetik Festival 5.5 lineup announced

by on Jan.18, 2013, under News


The full Kinetik Festival 5.5 lineup has been announced.

Aesthetic Perfection, Ayria, Cenotype, Decoded Feedback, Displacer, Dym, Encephalon, FGFC820, Fractured, Frontal Boundary, The Gothsicles, Iszoloscope, Life Cried, Myparasite, Nitro/Noise, Project Pitchfork, Project F, Suicide Commando, Terrorfakt and Tonikom have been announced. Twenty bands (instead of 35+ in past years) and the fact that the festival is only 4 days long (instead of 5 days long) and the fact that the venue is smaller is what the organizer Jean-François calls a “mini” festival.
And speaking of the venue, this years event will be held at a yet to be announced venue which is much smaller then in the past. Only about 550 tickets will be available for sale, so make sure you get yours as soon as they come on sale. The rumor is that each day’s ticket will be around $50 which is quite reasonable considering that will get you about 5 bands per night.

Even the lineup for each evening has been released. Hit up the Kineitk Festival Face Book event page for the details on each night’s lineup and latest news.
